Hi Larry,

Follow the steps below to protect your worksheet:

1. Go to Review tab.

2. Go to changes section and select Protect sheet.

protect Worksheet with Password

3. The protect sheet window will pop up.

4. Submit a password and check/un-check the user options as per your requirement.

5. Confirm password window will pop up re-enter your password.

6. To unprotect the worksheet go to the unprotected worksheet tab and enter your password.

In the same way if you want to protect your whole workbook go to the Protect workbook tab and select if you have to give Restricted Permission or restricted editing in your workbook.
